In the 3rd session of the 4-part series, select TriTom users will discuss their imaging applications using the TriTom system. Please check back as we approach the webinar date for further details on the presenters and their specific applications.
As small animals are widely used in biomedical studies, in vivo 3D imaging plays an increasingly important role in providing insights into disease-relevant biology. The TriTom system is a non-invasive 3D multimodal imaging technique that shows great potential for preclinical research. It utilizes a combination of high-resolution photoacoustic imaging and high contrast fluorescence optical tomography which allows deep tissue imaging, superior molecular sensitivity, and 3D localization of anatomical, functional, and molecular imaging.
Several scans may be performed with the subject repositioned along the rotation axis, allowing for a larger volume to be investigated. This system uses multi-wavelength optical excitation which enables spectroscopic analysis within the spatially resolved regions of interest, including injection sites, accumulation of the contrast agent, blood vessels, internal organs, and tissues. Functional 3D imaging of tumor/metastasis development, blood/water/lipid content and blood oxygenation can be performed using TriTom system. TriTom system has a broad spectrum of preclinical research applications ranging from cancer, toxicology, developmental biology to tissue engineering and regeneration.
TriTom is a valuable tool for numerous preclinical fields of research.
During the webinar we will:
- Discuss the use of TriTom system in diverse applications
- Highlight recent research and images acquired using the TriTom System
